Right William, obvious enough but seemingly ignored in the haste to put together a 'sexy/scary' scenario. BTW - I just got another valid response to that "We would be better off not meeting them" - which was "Why not?". As he went on to say, mammals and reptiles have a common ancestor and any meeting of minds could be very interesting - and besides many/most dinos and all contemporary mammals were omnivores or herbivores. Even so, in an earlier discussion I did allow that misunderstandings _might_ arise if we ever met a purely carnivorous intelligent species. But now, having reconsidered the evidence as seen on Earth, am inclined to think that pure carnivores probably won't ever achieve self-conscious intelligence. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
